As promised yesterday, I want to show you how the PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts set can be used all on its own.  I first created the blue/green card using all of the paisley sizes and layered them.  I liked how it looked so much that I created the pink/orange one, too!

I stacked up a couple of the paisley panels on white cardstock cuts for a little added dimension…

My second project today features the new FRESH ‘N FRUITY set paired with the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set on a (previously released) SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts…

FreshNFruityTreatTent

To create this fun lil’ treat/giftie, I cut 2 of the SWEET TREAT TENT and adhered them together.  Next, I stamped the sentiment and added the oranges stamped from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set and cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set (the leaves are also cut from this set).  To create the topper,  I cut out the 2 largest circles from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, folded them in half and added them to the top of the SWEET TREAT TENT.  Don’t you just love that debossed edge detail?  I then punched holes and added the ribbon.  The finishing touch was added the sequins topped with rhinestones for a bit of bling.

The inside contains a glassine bag filled with orange Jelly Bellies (yum!)…

I don’t want to keep you here too long, as there is so much more to see on this blog hop featuring our July release.

SO VERY SPECIAL

SoVerySpecial250

Here are just a few ways you can build the sentiments in this set…

MixMatch

In addition to SO VERY SPECIAL, I’d also like to introduce you to a new CONFETTI CUTS die set that is sure to stay on your crafting table for a long time…

TAG ME, TOO…

TagMeToo

This is a big tag that is *so much fun* to use!

Here, I combined TAG ME, TOO with the SO VERY SPECIAL set to created a gift set of 4 tags…

Special1

Special2

Using all of the dies in this Confetti Cuts die set as well as dies from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set, I created this tag…

TagMeToo1

My final card for today features the new SO VERY SPECIAL set along with the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set I introduced yesterday.  The scallop border is cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (previously released).

CirclesNScallopsConfettiCuts

These is *a lot* of love put into this next card and I am so happy that I get to give this card to a friend in about a month.

While over the years I have given baby cards to many friends, this one is (so very) extra special.  This card is for my friend, Anne (and her husband).

A few years ago Anne, whom I have known and loved since the 4th grade, was diagnosed with cancer.  I can still see exactly where I was and how I felt when she said the “c word.”  She endured rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and, eventually, a stem cell transplant (from an anonymous donor).  She beat the odds (thank you, God!) and in just a few weeks time, she will be welcoming home a sweet baby boy (via surrogate).  Needless to say, this is a super special delivery!

SpecialDelivery

The bib was created with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

I cut out the smaller of the 2 scallop circles and then used the smallest circle to take out the top portion, creating the bib shape.  I added white linen thread for detail (and cuteness!).  The heart is from the (previously released) LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

SpecialDeliverydetail

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on July 8th!

So Very Special

So Very Special is part of our unique KEY WORDS COLLECTION, which provides you with a “key word” to mix and match to create a wide variety of sentiments. Also featured in this set are flourishes to dress up your cards and tags. You’ll find yourself reaching for this set time and time again for all those “special” moments.

 4”x6” stamp set

Set of 14 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Special 2.4” x .8”

Tag Me, Too

Love large tags with fabulous details? So do we! Tag Me, Too is a large tag that can used as a panel on a card or scrapbook page or as the perfect addition to any gift bag/box. This Confetti Cuts die set contains a large tag with scallop edge, scallop circle to reinforce the tag hole and add detail and the words “for” and “you” making this set very versatile and fun!

Set of 4 wafer thin dies

NOTE: This Confetti Cuts set does not contain wire connectors; however, many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).

SIZE REFERENCE:

Tag 2.8” x 3.86”
